The organisation

The Junction Works is a for-purpose provider that has been operating within Greater Western Sydney since 1987.  With a mission of ‘creating new possibilities in people’s lives’, they focus on delivering creative and enriching community, youth, children’s and disability services that are designed to improve the lives of some of our community’s most vulnerable people.

The Junction Works service provision is underpinned by the philosophy and practice of being person-centred. With almost 30 sites, Austral and Seven Hills being the largest, they work within homes and centres across Greater Western and South Western Sydney.

The Junction Works aims for services that engage their clients. The staff share a passion for the people they support while building intentional trust relationships with their clients; which allows them to be more confident in how they live their life.

  • Experience in leading strategic growth – experience in delivering growth, a proactive approach towards opportunities, and taking calculated risks.
  • Deep sector experience – extensive experience in, and knowledge of, the disability sector.
  • A continuous improvement mindset – capable of inspiring others and learning from the past for better client experiences and outcomes.
  • Strong communication skills – to listen and to engage with clients, develop and maintain stakeholder networks and influence organisational outcomes.
